Who Was the Child at that Legendary Simchat Torah after the Shoah? (2-Minute Moving Video)

In this extremely powerful video, Anti-Defamation League director Abe Foxman remembers how a Russian Jewish officer was so excited to see him, the first living Jewish child he had seen after 1000s of miles of travel, that he lifted him up on that first Simchat Torah after the Shoah like a sefer Torah. In this video, see Foxman’s reunion with that Russian officer 65 years later.
